“… As the chair of BSPC, the Borders Solicitors' Property Centre, I have recommended the services of Radio Borders to our member firms, and the group has been advertising on local radio for the last few years. As we have member firms in every town in our area, regional coverage is important, and Radio Borders has a listening audience that is widely spread across the Region. For advertisers who are looking to build a presence in the Scottish Borders, there is no better way of reaching out and touching the lives of our 108,400 population. I am certain that an important part of our brand awareness, and our offer of an under one roof service, owes much of its success to our partnership with local radio.
David Kilshaw OBE, Partner Cullen Kilshaw
"The Radio Borders team offered a cost effective radio advertisement solution to assist us in our recruitment process. The process was streamlined from initial contact to producing a bespoke commercial script on our behalf. The high level of quality applicants received are evidence enough to demonstrate how effective radio advertising has been for us"
Tammy Yourston, HR Manager – Oregon Timber Frame Ltd
Interest in radio sponsorships and promotions is growing fast because advertisers are looking for new ways to connectwith consumers. Radio is a more trusted medium than many others, including newspapers and TV, and sponsorships and promotions allow the guest brand to harness this trust.Listeners have a strong relationshipwith their radio station. They describe radio as their friend, and use it to give them emotional support. They are sensitive to the relationship being undermined.
For sponsorships, the way the host and guest fit is essential. Sponsorships tend to be longer-term than promotions, often achieving their effect in a somewhat subliminal way. They are increasingly becoming more sophisticated, and extending beyond on-air announcements to station events, product placement, website activity, point of sale etc.Promotions tend to be shorter-term, and depend less on exact brand fit than on building excitement and participationthrough entertaining radio output. Promotions need good process management and quality control, with briefs being clear but flexible enough for each station and presenter to create their own best execution of the requirement.
Since they vary so much, there is no average figure for the effectiveness of S&P campaigns. Radio advertising is three-fifths as effective as TVadvertising on average: it makes sense that S&P would beat this average by some distance, since activity is much more intensive and frequent on radio, and persuasive brand messages are allowed.
Like sponsorships, promotions are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and listeners are now able to interact with the station via texting, e-mail etc.
